Master 4-H Volunteers
Master 4-H Volunteer Training is an exceptional training for volunteers in all levels and roles in the county 4-H program – club organizational leaders, project leaders, county committee members. Club and county 4-H programs revolve around many people…many of whom have very different personality styles. Recognizing personality traits in ourselves and others is essential to working effectively as a team. Master Volunteers will also learn strategies to incorporate the Essential Elements of Belonging, Independence, Generosity and Mastery into your club and county programs. Each of these Essential Elements is vital to the growth and development of youth.
The face to face portion of the Master 4-H Volunteer Training is a dedicated track conducted during the 2015 State 4-H Leaders Conference, February 13-15 in Torrington. The training will begin Saturday morning at 8 am and conclude by noon on Sunday. There will also be 4 on-line sessions to complete the training.
The registration fee for Master 4-H Volunteer Training is $100 and includes the full time conference registration fee (dinner and entertainment on Friday night, lunch, awards banquet and entertainment on Saturday night, breakfast and keynote on Sunday, breaks and conference gift). Participants in the Master 4-H Volunteer Training also receive a tote bag with over $85 worth of educational resources for programming in your county.
As part of the follow-up to the training, each of the Master Volunteers will need to document 20 hours of service back to the 4-H program, including one training program. Click the links below for a list of those who have completed the Master Volunteers Training.
In addition to completing the training during the State Leaders Conference, Master Volunteers will also be responsible for participating in four online training sessions. Each session will be offered twice and begin at 7:00 P.M.
